More news from GPK


Here are a few photos for the blog. Most were taken this morning as the Olympic torch passed through the Park, entered Lafleche, then returned a second time to the Park on Taschereau at Regent.

#311 Taken beside my grandfather's house on Isabel at Empire. When they dug down about 5-6 feet beside the building to raise the house and put in a foundation, they unearthed an area of flat stones. Can anyone thing why that smooth surface would have been there outside of the area of the house?

#348 Greg Grant and Jamie Burnett at intermission of the Cameron School of Dance Christmas show. The Paquettes can be seen in the right background.

#354 Waiting for the torch's arrival in front of the Town Hall.
